L.A. Noire on PlayStation 3 features a huge open world, filled with a wealth of different characters for you to meet and speak to over the course of the dark and twisting storyline. The city is an exact replica of Los Angeles in the forties and features 23 assigned cases for you to solve.
There are a number of additional cases that you can undertake at certain points in the game, which in turn build on the background of certain characters in the story. Once you embark on one of these, the main storyline is put on hold until you solve the case in hand.
L.A. Noire features a revolutionary piece of technology called MotionScan that allows for every single facet of an actor's performance, including their facial expressions, to be put into game. See if you can tell whether or not a suspect is lying by studying their body language and the expression on their face while you interrogate them.
PlayStation 3 fans are in for a special Rockstar Games treat thanks to the exclusive addition of the Consul's Car Traffic Case. It's an entirely new crime for you to solve that is only playable on PS3.
